Set Up and Get Started with Raspberry Pi 3
In the Box (Raspberry Pi 3): Safety Guide, Quick Start Guide in different languages, Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. And note that you cannot just do anything with the Raspberry Pi 3 unless you attach the additional accessories to it
Get up the below-stated accessories for the Raspberry Pi 3, which you will require:
1. Power Adapter: Get the Raspberry power Adapter with the specifications as 5.1 Volts and 2.5 Ampere output.
2. Wireless Keyboard With TrackPad: This is another very important thing you will need; we suggest you use the wireless miniature-style keyboard with an inbuilt trackpad and its power supply requirement. You can also use the USB keyboard, but this will add more load to the Raspberry Pi 3.
3. Touch Screen: Another must-have accessory for the Pi 3 is the Touch screen, which will show you all your content; hence, you can use the features and the functions.
You can go for the 7 inches Raspberry Pi touchscreen display that is suitable for almost every Raspberry device. The LCD comes with the DSI Ribbon cable, adapter board, and screw attachment to connect the Raspberry Pi to the board of the LCD.
This helps convert the Pi into a desktop or laptop-like structure that can run different OS and supports the Raspbian OS. You should assemble the Touch screen to the Raspberry device by yourself, and if you don’t know about the process of attaching cables, etc., then go for professional help. Keep in mind that any wrong connection could harm your device severely!
4. Power Adapter/ Ethernet Connection: The last connection you will need to get your Raspberry device running is the Power Adapter and the Ethernet cable to the Pi device ports.
This should not be difficult as preferred adapter ports are made on the Raspberry Pi device for the same purposes.
5. SD card: Get a MicroSD card of 16 GB capacity with as much speed as you can afford. Remember that you don’t need any specific type of SD card, but the common SD card from the market. The only thing you have to keep in mind is that slower will be the speed of the SD card; hence slower will be the Raspberry boot and performance.
6. Put in NOOBS: You have to put in the Operating system NOOBS in the SD card from your computer where you have pre-downloaded these all, and after that, install the SD in the specific card holder made on the Raspberry Pi.
7. At the end of all the above settings and installments, just power on the Power Adapter and the Keyboard device if it is wireless, and that is all. Raspberry Pi will now run the specific version of the OS that you have installed on your MicroSD card.
